Migraine Relief Therapy

Migraine Relief Therapy (MRT) was developed by our very own Tony Chilelli. With over 20 years of experience Tony’s eclectic approach uses Swedish Massage along with acupressure massage (Shiatsu) as a foundation for his MRT work. Migraine Relief Therapy (MRT) is usually a series of 10 massages, six in the first month, two the next month and then once a month for 2 months. Most clients begin to experience relief in as little as 4 sessions. Tony is confident that these techniques will either eliminate your migraines or drastically reduce their frequency or severity.

There are three components to Migraine Relief Therapy (MRT).

1.Massage Therapy creates a new awareness of one’s health.

2. Education is used to help the client understand the “cycle of a migraine”. (see below)

3. Tools are taught to catch a migraine in its earliest stages and to prevent it from escalating.

The Cycle of a Migraine

A.A client feels healthy, no signs of a migraine

B. Pretriggers are subtle changes that a migraine sufferer might not have associated with their migraines.

some examples of pretriggers are; Stress, Constipation, Depression, Diarrhea, Food cravings, Hyperactivity, Irritability, Neck stiffness, Sensitivity to light

C. 15 to 20% of migraine suffers experience aura’s which are often identified as

Visual phenomena, such as seeing various shapes, bright spots or flashes of light, Vision loss, Pins and needles sensations in an arm or leg, Speech or language problems

D. Triggers, are often the same symptoms as the pretrigger but with greater intensity.

E. The point of no return. A full blown migraine has not yet started but is inevitable.
